was the first wrestler I ever watched on TV and he freaked me out, cos he did that black stuff from the head (not with Ultimate Warrior, but with a jobber).
Brutus The Barber Beefcake
Ho's on the side : at home with Jim Duggan
Legion of Doom
Jake 'The Snake' Roberts
Ravsihing Rick Rude
And loved it with all these guys. Survivor Series was always amazing not the travesty it has become today
We'll always have Ric Flair
He is actually still going as well in TNA over here along with Hulk Hogan, Matt & Jeff Hardy, Mr Anderson, Booker T and Rob Van Dam. It is basically were old WWE/F people go to die
Really awful, I mean REALLY AWFUL
Ps Booker T is a commentator at WWE now
As Yesiamaduck says it is really, really, terrible. I think they film it in a barn in Alabama in front of a few hundred drunk rednecks. But if you are drunk or stoned it can be pretty funny
and i think i can probably stuff some weed into my shisha pipe. Aw shit.
Every Tuesday at 10pm on SyFy for me, the wife loves it!
but adding in more and more WWF/WCW rejects bringing their old feuds from 20 years ago with them ruined it.
Eric Bishoff? fuck off!
before they hooked up with another stable. Haven't watch in a couple of months though.
1994 - 1996
2006 - 2008
Was that the shittest gimmick ever or what?
but then again, most my memories of The Bossman was when he was corporate
BUT no. The Big Boss Man was awesome. He used to cuff people to the turnstile
"366. Bradshaw vs. Duke Droese
There was a scene between Bradshaw and Duke the Dumpster Droese, that has gained some fame. Apparently, Droese was making homemade GHB, and slipping it into girls drinks and raping them. The wrestlers backstage had told him how distasteful it was. But someone got word of it, and told Bradshaw to take care of it. So he essentially tied Droese up in the shower, and the stories vary from there. The most widely told version would be that Droese ended up raped in some way shape or form. I am more likely to believe that Bradshaw just made him think he was going to get raped."
Sable used to live in a trailer park before she met Mero. They have a bogus "how we met story" they tell everyone. The truth is that he met her while he was in WCW on the road... at a strip club. She was a stripper who offered "extras" for a price. Mero was impressed with the service and asked her to come on the road with him. She did. Mero didn't have any interest in making it a serious relationship though. He just wanted a regular piece on the road with him. So he started pimping her out to the boys a little bit. I know of at least five boys who took Mero up on it before she got pregnant. When she got pregnant Mero, as a part-time Christian, did the honorable thing and married her. Once the pregnancy was "handled" Sable continued to bang the boys but this time it was done w/o Mero in the know. She is apparently really into three and four way "dances" with her in a handicap match of sorts. BTW, she tells the boys they cannot wear condoms because she is "allergic" to them. I know one guy suggest lambskin but she wouldn't allow it because she is a vegan. The guy said, "Well you don't have to eat it."
- the ponciest wrestling name ever.
Hunter Hearst Helmsley? At least Bagwell had some first names.
the HHH character was *meant* to be a rich, privileged ponce.
Marcus Alexander Bagwell was a regular guy without a gimmick.
"Wildman" Marc Mero
The worst professional wrestler ever?
Everything he did looked so horrible
He just couldn't do anything. At all.
he's been in some really good matches, whether he carried them or not isn't really that big an issue and I hated him but Mongo was legitimately awful
X-pac was fucking terrible, and his special move crotch chopping made me want to run and hide as a kid :(
BUT he had his share of good matches, don't get me wrong I could do without him but to say he's the worst ever is a stretch :)
i think when it comes to the worst... remember that really english guy? WILLIAM REGAL. He was a fucking terrible wrestler too.
amazing on the mic and is technically brilliant, on your head be it
He get points just for longevity
and he's incredibly funny when he want's to be.... man I love Regal
ENOUGH WITH THE THISING.
I MADE THIS THREAD AND I CAN TAKE IT AWAY.
plus HE'S A MAN, SUCH A MAN!
I'd had an inkling it was, y'know, "pretend" for a while but when he did that on Owen Hart (or more specifically an area of space about a foot in front of Owen Hart's head) at KOTR 1998 the penny finally dropped.
he had a fun match against Yokozuna I remember having a video of
one of Vince's many über racist creations
would have been a WWF Champion if not for a crippling injury.
He shakes hands with the official - yes, there it is!
The man with the scariest voice of all time.
Speaks volumes that.
I've just had the most vivid flashback to my paternal grandad, who I used to sit and watch the wrestling with every saturday afternoon when i was *tiny*. Potential for earliest childhood memory right there! *aaaah, wells up*
I remember being 12/13 and completely baffled by the strange, incestuous gimmick he had.
I think the were called Low-Down
They always had backstage segments were they weren't allowed into the building because they were so irrelevant and nobody knew who they were.
and Grandmaster Sexayyyyy.
You'd better come back with someone awesome and old, AND FAST.
they where around a good year before Gillberg *in their first incarnations of Scott Too Hot Taylor and Too Sexy Brian Christopher*
i cant believe we didnt remember him. <3
Also Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart. Kudos for his beard alone
And no-one tried to skirt around the fact that Grandmaster Sexay (whose real name was Brian I think) was related to Jerry Lawler seeing as they looked identical.
HUSS! HUSS! HUSS!
Koko B. Ware
Best character on WWF Warzone by miles.
that's all I can ask.... you had
Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Kane, Mankind, The British Bulldog, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, HHH & The Rock to choose from
ALTHOUGH i will concede that I haven't him wrestle since about 1999.
Greg The Hammer Valentine
Marvel actually sued them for this.
and his nudie suit
Earthquake and typhoon
Animal and someone else.... wore red with black spikes maybe...?
Jake the snake Roberts
THE LEGION OF DOOM
who, incidentally, i've just wished happy birthday to on Facebook.
Keep bangin it, bangin itn bangin it
when i was younger, i thought he was boy george.
When I worked in a bar the Wrestling came on after the rugby once, with Goldust fighting a midget dressed as a leprechaun. A few of the punters were looking completely baffled by what they were seeing.
Kinda like Sub Zero, except not that good. Great entrance and pre-debut vignettes though.
There's definitely more...
already been done?
The Iron Shiek
The Nasty Boys
Bad News Brown
i found them in the roof space the other day whilst going through a box. FREE TO A GOOD HOME.

THE HONKY TONK MAN!
Or the Skyscrapers (Sid Vicious was one of them)
...Andre the GIANT?
but Royal Rumble 1992 was the pick of the bunch and watched it nearly every week. Flair's performance with Heenan's commentary and this amazing segment where the obvious highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrladAnUANM I can pretty much quote along with it. It's unreal.
Also THE ORIENT EXPRESS vs NEW FOUNDATION was a great little tag match from that show. Pat Tanaka was always a strange favourite of mine. You Tube'd him the other day and found this little gem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5xkfZQ1r4E Not just who he's facing but the music.
Man I loved that guy, he was awesome and was my first memory of watching WCW when it was on terrestrial TV.
Fake Razor Ramone, have no idea who he became to be or was
of the NWA. one career win. immaculate:
george the animal steele (he ate turnbuckle stuffing!)

Diamond Dallas Page

Superfly Jimmy Snuka
Has nobody mentioned KISS reject Sting yet?
then he was The Crow
Now he's the Joker
I still just scroll down this sometimes, remembering people and being happy
Did anyone used to play WCW vs NWO Revenge on N64? Defiantly one of the best games ever.
big sexy kevin
Is he obscure?
The Rock N Roll Express
Bad News Brown
Or B Squared
Two of his WWF gimmicks spring to mind:
- A mop - When Perry Saturn went out with a mop.
- A big hat - When Perry Saturn wore a big hat.
Please tell me someone else gets how OBSCURE I'm being..
Fake Razor Ramon
The best thing about fake Diesel and Razor was that it was hilariously obvious that the real versions had left and putting the evil dentist who became Kane in a pair of Kevin Nash's old trousers wasn't fooling anyone.
A man with no discernible gimmick.
great kick move too.
Flairs the man though. Currently reading his autobiography
Jimmy Wang Yang - now runs a pest control company
The Red Rooster, I remember him and thought he was good when I was a kid.
Not sure if someone has mentioned them yet, but the Bushwackers, loved these guys, but now realised how bad they were.
Has an aside, has anyone seen how bad selling has become now? They used to be so good at it, that I was genuinely worried at how badly "hurt" they were.
said on twitter that he loves the new Mumford and Sons album.
before he became Hunter Herst Helmsley
I remember him coming in with this huge build up, then he never turned up on tv again. Then all of a sudden he turned D-lo Brown in to a hebrew
i'd forgot how racist trips could be
that JBL Mexican border bit was brilliant television
cette vidéo promo sur JBL et la frontière mexicaine était brillante télévision

Who ever said the Natural Disasters up thread. remembering them gave me a good chuckle... http://lifeinadayofhouse.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/disasters-733660.jpg
Where you could be huge and be a big star. Also, those were the days where bear hugs were a standard wrestling move.
and they'll sell it like this really dangerous move that injures people.
THey did it with Mark Henry to Kane a couple of years or so ago
Yeah, I've seen that and it really looks terrible. It's shown me how bad and boring 80s wrestling sometimes was. Though, they knew how to sell back then. These days, it's just not that good, outside of a certain few.
Sensational Queen Sherri
Jimmy 'Mouth of the South' Hart
Bobby something (I wanna say Davro lol)
Rowdy Roddy Piper
but this guy is my favourite
The thread's back!

Jake 'The Snake' Roberts
The Lunatic Norman.
has a feud with Booker T in WCW over the use of the letter T... Big T won and Booker T was simply referred to as Booker for a few months... I need to watch some more WCW from this time period it sounds so fucking awful.
went to Leicester Square theatre a few weeks ago and saw they had evenings with Diamond Dallas Page and Shawn Michaels advertised in the coming months (separate evenings)
Doom (aka Ron Simmons and Butch Reed)
